V��v i*-**  COAST^NEWS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  ESTABLISHED     1945  March 8,1993 Volume 47 Issue 10  Women filling more jobs, still earning less  by Jane Seyd  Regardless of whether they recognize International Women's Day today  as feminists or otherwise, one place  women are still likely to feel the effects  of their gender is squarely in the poclc-  etbook.  According to Statistics Canada, new  figures show the number of women in  the paid labour force is now almost  equal to the number of men. Increasingly, more women are moving into higher-paying jobs such as administration  and management. They're also increasing the ranks of professional occupations such as social workers and  lawyers which require formal education  Majority still work in clerical jobs: Stats Canada  and training. More women are self-  employed than ever.  But in spite of these gains, according  to statistics, the majority of women still  work in traditional clerical jobs where  their work is underpaid and undervalued. And the situation on the Sunshine  Coast is pretty typical of that scenario.  Most traditional "women's work,"  like secretarial, clerical, cooking, cleaning and childcare, tends to be non-union  and on the low end of the pay scale,  says Tom Nishimura, a counsellor with  local Employment Canada. "Some of  them are not much better than minimum  wage."  A glance at the job board easily confirms those comments.  Add lo that the pressures of juggling  child care with paid employment, and  the situation for working women  becomes much more complicated.  And increasinply, that's what  women are doing. According to 1991  figures, 68 per cent of women wilh children at home are now in the labour  force compared with 52 per cenl of  those women in 1981. Over half of single mothers work in Ihe paid labour  force.  But for many women, access to  affordable daycare is still a problem.  From his own experience, "I know  there's a few that can't take casual jobs  early in the morning because they don't  have daycare," says Nishimura.  Women are also more likely to be  working part-time or on a casual basis  where they don't get benefits of full-  time employees.  Even women who are unemployed  are often worse off than their male  counterparts, drawing average weekly  benefits from $l50-$200 on the Sunshine Coast compared to average benefits of $400 weekly for men who are  unemployed.  What it comes down to is that  women still aren't paid adequately for  the work they do, says Linda Moseley,  chairperson of the Hospital Employees  Union.  turn to page 2  Sechelt  ponders  wharf  dilemma  by Stuart Burnside  It's been nearly four years  since it took control of the government wharf from Ihe federal  Small Crafts Harbours (SCH)  branch, but as time goes on  Sechelt is finding Ihe running of  the facility less than a money-  making venture.  According to the chairman of  Sechelt's Harbour Authority,  Cllr. Art Whistler, the wharf  cosl Ihe municipality almost  double what it produced in revenue for 1992.  "The revenue for 1992 was  approximately $3,000," Whistler'said, "and the expenses were  $9,000. We have a deficit of  roughly $3,900."  Whistler said SCH has so far  been absorbing minor maintenance costs to the wharf but was  running out of funds, meaning  Ihe municipality would now  have to pick up the tab.  Administrator Art Lew said  Friday that SCH was never  under obligation lo pay for routine maintenance in the lease  with Ihe municipality, but did  have a reserve fund for that purpose. "Now that fund is drying  up," Lew said.  There have been other troubles at the wharf as well, includ-  ing an episode of long-time  liveaboard residents refusing to  move their vessel or pay moorage costs. There are currently  three fishing vessels moored  there whose owners also haven't  paid their bills.  MacLarty, who noted the  most recent Hydro bill for Ihe  wharf was in excess of $600,  asked what would happen if  Sechelt "handed Ihe wharf back  to the federal government."  Lew responded that, should  Sechelt return control of the  wharf lo Small Crafts Harbours, there was every likelihood it would end up a private  marina as happened al Irvine's  Landing. "I would think they  wouldn't continue lo run it as a  government wharf," Lew said.  Sechelt's lease for Ihe wharf  lasts until 1995 and under it,  SCH will pay only for major  repairs, so council is pushing  for a full inspection of the facility "while the federal governmenl still has some money."  Lew said the council of 1995  would have to decide if continuing to run the wharf is worthwhile.  Kenan Mackenzie riding Samson wraps up the Sunshine Coast  Equestrian Club Hunt Saturday, roaring through the water with  other riders close on his heels. The club rounded off the day with  an early afternoon 'breakfast' and a Wild West Hunt Dance at the  (iibsons Legion that evening. Joel Johnstone pholo  New band leadership calls  for unity, tradition revival  by Darah Hansen  Wilh an eagle feather symbolizing strength and protection  clutched in his hand, Gary Fes-  chuk was sworn in Thursday  afternoon as chief of the  Sechelt Indian Band.  An excited crowd of about  120 people clapped and cheered  as Feschuk pledged his allegiance to the band, promising  lo strive to advance the peoples' best interests and to faithfully perform the duties of his  office to the best of his abilities.  Feschuk then addressed the  crowd, thanking outgoing chief  Tom Paul, who received a  standing ovation, and councillor Ben Pierre for Iheir efforts  in leading the Sechelt nation to  its present position.  He reiterated the priorities of  the new council, calling for unification of the community, a  revival of tradition and culture,  creation of more jobs and  promised to work closely wilh  all levels of governments on the  Sunshine Coast.  He spoke too on Ihe land  claim, promising to continue  what he predicts will be "a  long, hard battle.  "This council will not let  you down," Feschuk said. "Our  people will come first."  Also sworn in at the ceremony were the four new band  councillors, who in turn  thanked the band members for  their election before adding a  few comments of their own.  "We are moving on to a new  era as is evident here today,"  said Calvin Craigan, noting the  presence of various guests from  outside the band community  including representatives from  all three local governments and  the Sechelt RCMP detachment.  "We all have lo work together to create a higher standard of  living," he said.  Year 2000 program assailed,  defended at Langdale forum  by Darah Hansen  The Year 2000 took some  knocks but remained standing  Wednesday night after a group  of parents met wilh a panel of  the program's supporters representing leachers, parent groups  and Ihe school board.  The purpose of the meeting  was to discuss the changes in  the education system and Ihe  effects the changes are having  on the children.  And about 30 parents took  advantage of the opportunity to  voice their concerns and ask  questions about the new program.  Opening the question period,  Jacob Knaus spoke on a point  that seemed to be on Ihe minds  of many of the parents present.  "I have concern for young  people here in BC," Knaus said.  With no measurable standards of basic skills and with  little accountability for the work  they do, he asked, "Will (our  children) be capable of coping  with the challenges of Ihe competitive environment which Ihey  will encounter?"  A Roberts Creek mother  wondered if the Year 2000 was  going too far in the opposite  'Let's get this back  in perspective  and get some  balance here'  direction from the old school  system which taught a more formal curriculum of reading, writing and mathematics.  She said she supports change  but added the Year 2000 is failing some children "immensely."  Using her own son as an  example, she said the work he's  doing now under the new program is far below whal he'd  been capable of doing before.  She said his teacher had  explained to her that his  progress was acceptable, that  her son was not emotionally/socially ready to keep up  with the workload yet.  "I think he was being lazy  and was allowed to be lazy," the  child's mother told the forum.  "What happens when he's in  grade 12 and not doing anything, just say, 'Oh well, he's  not emotionally ready' and pass  him anyway?  "I'm panicking. Are my son  and daughter going to get out  Ihere in the work world and not  have the (basic) skills," she  asked. "Let's get this back in  perspective and gel some balance here."  Another parent reiterated the  concerns expressed by the others, adding a personal twist to  his own son's, a Langdale Elementary student, experience.  "I travel a lot," he said, "If  he has no (letter or percentage)  marks and I go to Alberta,  where do I tell them he is? I  don't know.  turn to page 2  Graham Allen presides as Wesley Jeffries swears in as  councillor - at right, Sechelt Chief (Jary Feschuk during  ceremonies Thursday. Joel Johnstone pholo  "We are trying to keep our  kids out of the courts," he said.  "We are trying to keep them in  school. We are trying to promote education and to have a  better relationship with the  RCMP.  'We all have to work  together to create  a higher standard  ofliving'  - Calvin Cmtgan  "These are the dreams of our  forefathers," Craigan said. "We  are going to do a good job for  you."  "I keep telling people I'll  run just one more time then I'll  retire... maybe," said Theresa  Jeffries upon accepting her second term as councillor.  She promised, "It's a true  and narrow step we're taking  and we're going to make il."  First-time councillor Wesley  Jeffries urged band members  toward continued involvement  in important issues facing the  band.  "Land claims are important  issues," he said, "but I know we  can't lose focus on the people.  Everyone has a right to have  their say and we have to listen  because the people are Ihe government."  And wearing the jacket of  his father, Ted Dixon, in a symbolic gesture of respect, Trent  Dixon spoke about the future.  "For me it's going to be a  good three years. It's an honour  to work with these people," he  said in reference to the council.  He called for 120 per cent of  energy to be put into reviving  the band lands, "because we are  going to be here forever."  In his outgoing speech, Tom  Paul congratulated the new  council and said it was an honour to serve the Sechelt people  for the past six years.  "We are a unique government," he said, adding, "I will  always be here to offer my  assistance."  Ellen Maxwell celebrated her 100th birthday March I,  making her ShurnclifTe's first centenarian since the extended  care home opened its doors 10 years ago.

Joel Johnstone pholo  Gibsons grapples with grant requests  by Charles Hart  An increasing number of organizations  are looking for cash grants at town hall, and  a tightening of purse strings reflects Gibsons  council's unwillingness to become a public-  funding institution.  "We're not a charitable organization,"  said Cllr. Ted Hume when council last Tuesday revealed, after much privale discussion,  its grant decisions so far in 1993.  "We're supposed lo be running a town,"  said Hume, who is grant committee chairman, "and we can't just keep giving it away  to everybody."  THe town has budgeted $76,000 for  grants-in-aid this year, $3,000 less than in  1992. Over half that amount is earmarked for  the town's share of library operation and  maintenance ($32,000) and a fee-for-service  contract with the chamber of commerce  ($11,000).  For the balance, five organizations had  theic funding requests approved last week:  Sunshine Coast Breakaway ($2,000), the  Elphinstone Pioneer Museum ($1,700), the  SPCA ($1,500), Ihe Minor Hockey Association for the Midget AA Tournament ($223),  and BC Pitch-In ($225).  Six others had their requests deferred  until council receives more information: Sea  Cavalcade, Gibsons Ambassador Pageant,  the Library Association, Chamber of Com  merce, Gibsons Teen Outreach and the Wesl  Howe Sound Recreation Commission.  "Some have healthy expenditures and we  want more information to ensure they are  spending in a publicly conscious manner,"  Hume said.  Four organizations had their requests  denied: Sunshine Coast Home Support Society, BC Schizophrenia Society, Festival of  the Written Arts and Gibsons Landing Heritage Society. Said Hume: "We can't open  the door to everybody who puts in a letter."  Hume noted thai grants are available only  to non-profit organizations who submit a  financial statement. "Some people don't do  that."  Sechelt principal sidelined by health concerns  by Darah Hansen  Sechell Elementary principal David Short is temporarily stepping  aside from his duties al the school as a result of a medical leave of  absence.  Appointed to temporarily replace Short is Sechelt Elementary  vice-principal Karen Steffensen in the posilion of acting principal.  Nancy Brindley will be assisting Steffensen as acting vice-principal while still continuing as coordinator of the district's French programs.  District superintendent Clifford Smith would not disclose the specific reason for Short's temporary leave, saying only that it was personal in nature.  Smith did say Short would continue to work for the school district  outside his duties as principal, fulfilling about 40 per cent of his regu-  Retirement and Insurance Planning Since 1982  ��� Retirement  Planning  WM  ��� 886-9111  ��� RRSP, RRIF, and  Annuities  MM  ��� Toll Free:  1-800-663-2051  ��� Life & Disability  Insurance  mm  Mutual lllivds lra-.-T.a-.- Willi  r rtiartlaan (araaip aa* hiiials IJal.

Of Ihe temporary appointment of Steffensen to principal, Smith  said the school board is confident she can fill the role.  "We wouldn't have appointed her if we weren't sure she was capable," he said.  He added the appointment called for some use of judgment. If  Short's absence was expected to be longer, the board might have  hired a more senior person, he said.  But in this case, no one is sure just how long Short will be away.

Yel another mother questioned the process of the educational change."The change is  different in every school and  with every teacher across the  district," she said. "And Ihe kids  are getting caught in the middle."  Faced with the questions, the  panel of representatives held  fasl to the values of the Year  2000. Sludenis are getting a better, more individualized education, they said. Students are  being graded, their mistakes are  being corrected, they are  accountable for their progress,  they insisted - just in a different  way.  Langdale primary teacher  Alison Davies, said Ihere is an  essential difference between  schooling and educating a child.  Schooling, she said, "is what  we have to know lo become an  adult and live and work in an  economic environmenl.  "Educating is something  really different. It's a lifelong  process - whal we are as people,  our communities and cultures.  This is the process we have  been trying to bring lo life."  Gale Woodhousc, sitting on  the panel as a parent representative, said the Year 2000 came  about because formal education  has failed.  "We don'l know what our  children are heading for," she  said, "bul I strongly feel lhat my  kids are going lo be better prepared lo face whatever life is  throwing al them because they  are in control of their education.  "Yes, there are Ihe basic  skills they have to have but at  the end of the day we have to  give Ihem everything we have  and Ihe Year 2000 is giving it lo  Ihem."

There's also the assumption  that while men need to earn  enough to support a family,  women don't. "That's such a  fallacy," she says.  Jobs that women traditionally do, like clerk positions, also  lend to have a large number of  incremental steps to reach the  top pay bracket, says Moseley,  whereas for men's w**k, "The  day they start is the day they  make their big money.  "It's not another day, another  dollar. It's another day, another  67 cents," she says.  For Dianne Evans, recently  named planning co-ordinator  for the local women's resource  cenlre projecl, it's also important lo realize lhal "work  doesn't happen in a vacuum."  Women also need lo get  involved in making policies in a  broader societal sense, she says,  which includes issues like child  care.  In terms of low-paying woik  traditionally done by women,  "I don't think il matters who  does Ihe job, all jobs should be  respected," says Evans.  Many forms of work, such as  unpaid domestic labour and  child rearing are slill not recognized as real labour, and lhat  should change, says Evans.  "We have to change the  ways we look al those kinds of  things," she says. "In our society, the bottom line is always  measured in dollars and cents."  "Definitely Ihere have been  improvements, but there is still  a long way to go." Coast News, March 8, 1993  news  Fawcett closes tap on bingo career  by Stuart Burnside  Very little noise was heard  from the 170 or so people compressed into the Roberts Creek  Community Hall Tuesday night,  except for the soft padding of  bingo marking pens, the rustling  of wind-stirred bingo balls and  the calm, clear voice of the ball  announcer.  "Under the B.12 ... Under the  G,42..."  It was more than just another  nighl of bingo, however, it was  the final evening to be called by  Emie 'Mr. Bingo' Fawcett.  Fawcett, who has been organizing Coast bingo events for  the last 32 years, and who has  been running bingo for the  Roberts Creek Legion since  1989, took himself out of the  game and into retirement last  week at a special Roberts Creek  Community Hall ceremony followed by the evening of bingo.  "It went really well," Faw-  cett's long time friend and bingo  associate, Jack Eldred, said of  the evening. "As you can see, a  lot of people showed up ... usually we would only expect a  hundred on bingo nights, but  tonight they came to say goodbye to Ernie."

In other resource based communities, one  and a half to three indirect jobs are affected  by each direct forestry job losl.

The cost overrun was announced last month  after bids for the project came in. According to  Mayor Nancy MacLarty, the overrun is largely due  to the liming of the project in that the initial cost  estimates were done two years ago while the bidding for the contract was done last month.  The first stage of the revitalisation project will  see the overhead wiring along Cowrie Street  replaced with underground service. Il will also  include new sidewalks for Cowrie and the installation of ornamental street lighting.  Spani developments of Sechelt will begin work  on the project in the next couple of weeks.

Their investigation revealed  the store had been broken into  by means of breaking the glass  out of the front door. The suspects) left shortly before  police arrived.  Police say a large number of  cigarettes were stolen.  Staff Sgt. Cam Reid said the  Pharmasave is fifth on a list of  stores that have been broken  into. The other stores include  , the Sunny Market, Shell Station, Sechelt Supermarket and  , Petrocan.  In each case, cigarettes have  been the main target of theft.  Reid estimated the total  ,, monetary amount of cigarettes  stolen to date to exceed  $50,000 and suspects a portion  of the stolen goods is being  resold to businesses off the  Coast.  One suspect, age 17, was  arrested last week in connection with the Sunny Market  . break, entry and theft, confirmed Reid.

Recognition, when given, is too often trolled out during annual events such as volunteer week, then forgotten  for the remaining 51 weeks of the year as individuals and  groups go about Iheir respective affairs in relative  anonymity.  Their are countless non-profit organizations struggling  to maintain worthwhile, if not essential, services on the  Coast that would otherwise perish without funding assistance.  Residents are consequently confronted, almost at every  turn, by this raffle or that sale or the olher local event lo  benefit a particular cause. Still it is frequently not  enough.  The Sunshine Coast Minor Hockey Association is one  example of an organization needing extra help at the  moment as it embarks on hosling the first ever Midget  AA provincial championships on the Coast, beginning  this coming weekend and running all through next week.  The volunteer help needed to organize and run such an  event is legion, and the budget for playing host community, though not mammoth, is beyond the nominal  resources of a minor sports association.  At the same time it is clear that the event itself will  bring spin-off business to the Coast and will result in  some tourism return in the future if the visiting teams,  parents and coaches have a good time.  Fundraisers are one way to help, local government  grants are something else.  They are an excellent way for elected representatives  to encourage, support and even promote causes lhat benefit the community - in sports, the arts, social services or  health care - and do so in way in which we all share.  There is a social and economic development role for  local government to play, even if it is not officially mandated to do so.  Gibsons council finds itself on the horns of a dilemma  with the growing number of grant requests it receives  each year.  Some municipalities have eventually responded by  denying all cash grants rather than having lo make thorny  decisions about who should, or should not, get help. It is  a tempting course of action, especially when the largesse  being extended on behalf of taxpayers usually attracts as  much criticism as praise.  So it's good to see Gibsons and the other local governments of the Coast still approving grants for cash-  strapped community organizations that fulfill specific criteria. There is a limit, but total denial of all funding  requests for fear of recrimination about unfairness or  favouritism is not the way to go.  There are too many worthwhile causes at stake that  should never be allowed to slip into oblivion for lack of  political courage.  Keep the channels of funding open, and count blessings for the commitment and dedication of the Coast's  countless volunteers.  letters  Tourist findings  abhorrent  Re: Tourists find  services wanting  It was with considerable dismay that I read the Feb. 22 article quoting the results of the  1992 Sunshine Coast visitors  survey.  The slant on the article  appeared, to myself, that I (as a  full-time resident) should discard the standards and qualities  of life that brought me here four  years ago in favour of ihose  attractions which would please  Ihose who would be, by the  nature of being a tourist, transient.  I point lo a few points which  I find are the most abhorrent:  amusement parks, mini golf  attractions, go-cart tracks and...  the opening of 'views' along the^  highway.  It is my feeling that the  majority of the residents of the  Coast would not want not, in  fact, permit a 'Coney Island'  flavour to our home. This same  majority would not tolerate  changes to the current 'trail  through the forest' status of our  roadways.  I would hope that those considering any development for  the potentially lucrative tourist  trade would survey their neighbours and others with a vested  interest in the area, as to the  community acceptability of such  ventures.  I further hope that all residents take an active role in the  formation of lhe guidelines  which will dictate the overall  appearance of our coast.  In closing I wish to slate that  I do agree with the statements of  Mr. Majcher which received  only approximately the last 10  per cent of the article expressing  the need for community input  and consultation.  PAUU.T0MBU  Roberts Creek  Support paradigm  of biodiversity  Paradigm is an old word  which has recently popped up  into common usage with a new  meaning.  Your paradigm is your own  personal mental model of how  you perceive the universe. Some  peoples' paradigms consist of a  map of their neighbourhood on  which is marked such things as  where to buy certain drugs, the  liquor store and the locations of  the best party houses.  Most important in the  economists' paradigm are such  parameters as real annual  growth in ONP, currency fluctuations and interest rates.  Now if we look into the  paradigm of Ihe developer and  see how it intersects with an  issue such as waterfront development we find some interesting concepts.  The bottom line is the bottom  line, maximize profits. Therefore you try lo minimize development costs such as draining  and filling swamps and building  breakwaters and then maximize  resale value. Profits are maximized.  Still in the developers  paradigm there is a new expense  and bother. This is having to  deal with those pesky environmentalists. The developers must  hire public relations people who  can shape 'reality' in just the  right way to manufacture consent for their development from  a majority of Ihe people.  letters welcome  We welcome letters to the editor on matters of public  interest, However, we reserve the right to edit  submissions tor brevity, clarity and legality.

V0N3A0  My own personal paradigm  has been shaped by formal studies in the hard sciences and  more recently by the sludy of  the softer science of biology.  There is a branch of biology  called ecology, which is the  study of how one organism  interacts with another organism,  how one species interacts with  another species, etc.  As one studies ecology one  must eventually come to the  conclusion that the entire biosphere of this unique planet is  interconnected.  As an aside il is interesting to  note that most indigenous peoples whose paradigms differ  greatly from the science  paradigm, come to the same  realization of the inter-connectedness of all living things.  (Head: Wisdom of the Elders,  by Dr. D. Suzuki).  In die ecologists paradigm,  the shoreline between Gibsons  and Secret Cove may be represented by a piece of string. On  that piece of string are two  beautiful jewels representing the  estuaries at Sargeant Bay and  Wilson Creek. The biodiversity  that these mucky, expensive-to-  develop places support has  value much out of proportion to  their linear occupation of waterfront.  Please save these jewels of  biodiversity from the toxin-  spewing pleasure craft and the  myopic developers. Two hundred years hence, humanity may  thank you.  JIM A. REEVE  Wilson Creek  A difference of perception on pharmaceutical practices  One of the most controversial measures proposed by the federal government recently has been  the extension of monopoly or patent protection to  the large pharmaceutical companies.  The proponents of the law, to wit Brian Mulroney and the boys on his front bench, have argued  that this patent extension, allowing the pharmaceuticals a longer period before generic drug manufacturers are allowed to duplicate the drug, will allow  the pharmaceutical companies to invest billions of  dollars in Canada for research and development of  new drugs.  "It will create jobs in this country," intones the  Prime Minister who got elected almost nine years  ago promising jobs, jobs, jobs.  Critics of the new law, almost everybody  except the Tory cabinet, have argued lhal this will  add millions of dollars to every provincial medical  health plan in Canada.  If you have to be told that the provinces are in  financial trouble and one of the cited reasons,  besides federal cutbacks to the provincial treasuries, is the rising cost of health care, then you  have to have been dozing your way through the  last 10 years.  I suppose we could congratulate you if that is  the case, but it won't keep the awakening from  being something of a rude shock.  It's not as if the pharmaceutical companies  have been suffering under the status quo. On the  musings  john burnside  contrary, their earnings have been buoyant and  growing. They just need a little more to afford the  research and development and create all those jobs  which are always just around the comer according  to our Prime Minister.  One source I read not so long ago placed the  Quale family as principal stockholders in the pharmaceutical companies and claimed that Danny Boy  had seen to it that his friend and mentor, George  Bush, was blessed with a nice large block of the  buoyant drug stock.  I can't vouch for this, of course, but it does  suggest the only credible reason I have heard for  Bush refusing to dump his laughably inept running  mate during Bush's second run for the White  House.  Meanwhile, whilst Brian and the boys press on  with their plan to help out the drug giants and  Canadians wonder who to believe in the routine  chaos of warring governments in Canada, some  interesting things are suddenly being said by the  new American administration.  Hillary Rodham Clinton, charged with the  responsibility of revamping the moribund American health care system, kicked off the assault on  the drug companies during a trip to Pennsylvania  recently.  According to Hillary, the cost for an average  vaccine purchased under federal contract in America rose from $6.69 to $128.79 between the years  1982 and 1992.  The figures are based on calculations by the  American Departmenl of Health and by the American Academy of Pediatrics.  Hillary's husband, Bill, weighed in a day later.  According to the President, in 1982 the average  cost of a complete series of vaccines for a child,  purchased in America by private doctors, was  $23.29. By 1992 the same series of vaccines cost  $243.90.  This profiteering by the drug companies, and  that's bow Clinton sees it, has caused America to  nave the lowest rates of child immunization in the  hemisphere after only Haid and Bolivia.  As for monies spent on research and development of new drugs, Clinton said the pharmaceutical industry is spending $1 billion more each year  on advertising and lobbying than it does on developing new and better drugs.  Another example of profiteering was given by  Tory Dalton Camp on the CBC a few weeks ago.  According to Camp, there is a vaccine which has  been used for sheep for several years. The cost was  six cents a shot per sheep. Just recently the drug  involved was found to have some application in  human bowel cancer and suddenly the price  became $6 a shot.  No wonder our health budgets are going over  the sustainable top.  Now the point here is the difference in attitude  between our Prime Minister and the President of  the United States. Our Brian justifies a longer  patent protection time which will enable the drag  companies to make enough money to invest in  research jobs in Canada.  The concept of something called 'intellectual  property' is cited as justification for this patent  extension and the clear implication is that if this  extension is not permitted then the poor drug companies will not be able to invest in research and  development in this country.  The American president, and these we must  remember are American companies, sees huge  conglomerates profiteering at the expense of the  health and well being of the American people. He  sees organizations more apt to spend money lobbying than they are to spend their profits on research.  Which of the two leaders do you think has the  truer picture of die pharmaceutical industry?

You put a coaster on top of a  glass and a dime in the middle  of the coaster, then everyone in  turn burns holes in the coaster  with their cigarettes (well  maybe these days they can borrow one, or light a communal  fag for the game); and whoever  burns the hole that drops the  dime buys the next round.  A citizen, however convivial,  who can maintain a straight eye  and a steady hand, and a nice  sense of the physical laws of  tension, can do quite well at this  over a couple of hours or so. It  has also the effect of discouraging talk about politics, job problems, gender gyrations, or  breaking into song, etc.  This you may think is an odd  subject to pop into one's mind if  you are scratching about for a  column for the Coast News. It  happened, however, that in  moving into a new space I was  going through a bunch of paper  with a view to throwing much of  it out, and I came upon the first  item in this little series. It was  the first column I had tried anywhere and it came out the day  before my 70th birthday, almost  five years ago and it was headed  A Biblical View of Beer Taxes.  This, I suppose, might stir up  some sort of image. Here is this  old chap, living quietly in the  country (albeit on the vast Pacific's rim) and suddenly he comes  out in print linking biblical stories with an obvious rage at galloping beer taxes. Something  must have moved this sedentary  old type, and obviously beer  taxes was explosive enough.  The biblical bit I found afterwards, talking to the odd person  who read it, was not widely  understood. 11 was about the  'old men sitting in the gate',  mentioned several times in the  old testament and recognized  here' as actually sitting in llie  wine shop (or pub) always to be  found just within the gates of  In a nutshell  those old towns.  We went up through history  as the pubs continued to be the  meeting places for pensioners  and working people and artists  and students until the present  when large numbers of the  above, if not most, have been  priced out of them mainly and it  would seem, deliberately,  through ever cumulating taxations.  Naturally and in under 10  years, Ihe image of the pub has  changed. This is not altogether  true in Britain, where an Act of  Parliament limited the tax on  beer, 'the workers' brew'. In  London today you get change  from a pound (roughly $2.70)  for a pint of Best Yorkshire. On  the Coasl here you pay almost a  third more for a pint of more  watered stuff.  And the image of the pub  changes the way people think of  pubs. Recent British TV films  show their pubs about the way  they used to be, with the same  various cast of characters, the  same bonhomie and wit, the  same easy-going meetings of  strangers, and the same odd  underlying decorum.  The image we get these days  on the screen of our own pubs is  very different. It comes mainly  in commercials from the beer  companies, who have, you  would think, a stake in showing  pubs to their best advantage.  The image we get from them is  that the Canadian pub is a scrum  of heavily dressed and coiffed  upwardly mobile predators  bandying only the most banal  cliches. Going in Ihere to look  for a wise old pensioner, or an  artist, a real artist, or a band of  students perhaps with professor,  would clearly be fruitless.  But this is simply an advertiser's view and I think, from  their point of view, a mistaken  stuart nutter  one. The pubs have not all  turned into singles' dating cockpits. Maybe you have to go out  of town, even as far as the Sunshine Coast, but Ihere are pubs  which continue to be pubs.  Maybe die music, chosen by and  for the staff, may be overwhelming and there will be  Ihis's and that's, but still what  you've got here is basic pubs  and basic pub people.  What you've also got,  though, is an attitude which has  apparently become entrenched  in all governments of whatever  political hue: thai these friendly  middle class people should be  the first to hit on whenever any  kind of new tax seems required.  u/CnO,     i^*aj  i  Going Away  on Vacation?

I have watched in dismay as  this heap grew from an innocent  pile (or what somebody thought  was) of grass/hedge clippings,  lo lhe horrendous pile of laziness it represents today. I've  personally gone to such lengths  as hanging up a No Dumping  sign nearby, but I should have  hung up a target instead.  Last year, prior to the 'Test  of Metal' mountain bike race  and wilh Ihe financial backing  from race organizer Paul Brodie  and permission from BC Hydro,  I hired a local contractor to deal  with the mess. I'll admit it was  partly for selfish reasons, since  we needed a bigger area for the  start/finish for 180 riders and  spectators. Even so, when we  were gone so would be the eyesore. Unfortunately, due to lack  of communication, the work  never took place and the pile,  then in its infancy, was spared.  Since our busy/broke ministry "doesn't have the time or  money to help clean it up," then  maybe we should. That way,  when the police patrol the area,  it will be visually pleasing to  them.  Let me also say that there are  two or three other areas on the  Coast that are just as bad.

GLEN ILLINGWORTH  Human mind  going to waste  An open letter to  the Sunshine Coast  Regional District  I am writing on behalf of the  Alpha Omega Foundation which  was founded in 1988 in Pender  Harbour. By way of introduction  this foundation has 29 members  on the Sunshine Coast, mosi of  them in Pender Harbour. We are  dedicated to promoting harmony  between man, nature and the  creator.  This involves a deep concern  for how man relates with his  home, the earth. Excessive  waste, which has become a  trademark of modern society, is  a severe abuse of the earth's  resources. We believe that  man's attitudes and actions have  to change in a major'way if we  are to continue as a species on  this planet.  A local issue which needs a  new, reasonable, integrated  approach is the Pender Harbour  garbage dump. Being an unsupervised, open landfill with no  consideration of reuse of materials or recycling creates an environmentally unsafe and inefficient operation. Although the  largest part of the solution is for  people to reduce the amount of  waste, we will not address that  in this letter.  There have been several  studies done on the Pender Harbour landfill. One obvious conclusion is lhat water draining  from the site is polluted. Since  there is no control over whal is  disposed of at the dump, there is  a very real threat of seriously  contaminated leaehate draining  into Oyster Bay and Pender Harbour. Also, unauthorized burn  ing introduces contaminants into  the air.  It has been Ihe history of ihis  community to maintain the status quo as to lhe garbage dump.  The current landfill permit ends  on June 30, 1993. The regional  district is appealing to Ihe waste  management branch for an  extension to the permit, It is also  applying for an amendment to  expand the present dump. Perhaps the dump could be expanded and be environmentally safe.  The question is - at whal price,  and for whal time period? Estimates obtained by the regional  district showed that it would be  less expensive to operate a  transfer station. The local populace seems to reject such eslimales. This disparity musl be  clarified. Although logic would  seem to choose the lower priced  option, a referendum could be  held on whether to have a transfer station or an expanded  dump.  Regardless of whether the  dump is expanded or a transfer  station is installed, several  changes must be made; Reuse  add recycling of materials musl  be encouraged and facilitated.  Burning of refuse and drainage  of leaehate musl be strictly controlled. Scattering of waste and  mixing of incompatible waste  materials (wood, toxics, gyproc,  batteries, etc.) musl be restricted. An attendant at the site is  vital if these goals are to be realized.  Ultimately the reduction of  wasle al Ihe source is the basic  answer and the source is the  human mind.

Previous logging practices  by various companies had  resulted in considerable damage  lo streams and foreshore on both  sides of us.  Almost weekly the local  media report on ecological disasters caused by the tyrants of  the logging industry. I would  like lo spoil that record by commending Bob Rabantad of the  l:orest Service, Mike Bell of  Inlerfor and the individual falters who got the job done but  showed a high degree of concern and responsibility for what  they left behind.  Falling commenced in  December and was completed a  week ago. An island of trees  was left to support the home of  an eagle, a generous shelterbelt  was left along the shoreline and  the integrity of a stream was left  intact.  This indicates to me that dialogue and communication in  planning can result in compatible land use between logging  interests and tourism.  A.R. GIROUX  Sechelt  Arts coverage  applauded  I would like to express my  appreciation of the interest  shown by the Coast News in the  exhibitions at the Arts Centre.  The editorial decision to publish  the excellent articles by Darah  Hansen and Roxanne Gregory,  supported by Joel Johnstone's  artful photography, reflects an  understanding of the extent of  interest in the arts on the Sunshine Coast that many of us  share.  The articles in your paper  have been frequently mentioned  by our visitors as the source of  Iheir information that the show  was on, and lhe reason for their  deciding to attend.  Since so many people do  read and respond to these articles, I would like to be allowed  to correct a misunderstanding  which I undoubtedly must take  responsibility for. Darah Hansen's Feb. 22 article mentioned  only Barbara Barron as a coordinator for this show.  In fact, I had the capable and  enthusiastic support of five potters who each put in between 10  and 50 volunteer hours in the  two months leading up to this  exhibition. I would like to  ensure lhat Barb Barron, Beth  Feldman, Pal Forst, Elaine Fut-  terman and Katie Janyk all get  the acknowledgement they  deserve for their essential contributions.  Each of these people's specific knowledge about the clay  medium far exceeds my own  and without their expertise and  willingness, the preparation and  selection for this show would  have been impossible.  The Arts Centre depends  absolutely on such dedicated  volunteers to make its programs  possible and especially so with  labour-intensive shows like  Objects In Clay.  My apologies to Darah for  not making this information  more explicit in the press  release information which I sent  her. Her responsive and intelligent articles over the past year  have communicated and stimulated much interest in the  shows.

"Through all the changes in  ferry service, like the change to  Langdale terminal in June 1957,  to the purchase of Black Ball by  the province of BC's premier,  WAC Bennett in 1961, I commuted for 20 years.  "Rather sad to see Ihe  changes in scheduling - no  more hourly sailings. Fewer  sailings and bigger vessels was  Ihe outcome and that spilled a  great string of cars and trucks  out on our narrow highway."  ...,,, .BridgePlayers  Lights are burning late on  Mondays at the Gibsons Yacht  Club while a group of bridge  players enjoy a game of rubber  and duplicate bridge.

Last weekend the boys had a project to clean up  the garbage around the Welcome Woods area and  they collected more than 300 pounds of carelessly  thrown stuff at the sides of the roads. They are now  going on a weekend survival course at the forestry  camp in Egmont.  Grateful resident  Redrooffs resident Thea Leuchte was most  grateful to the Halfmoon Bay Fire Department for  their swift and efficient response lo the brush fire  near her home.  At this time of year people imagine that the  ground is damp enough to prevent a fire spreading,  but this is not so.  It is bone dry beneath the surface so great care  should be taken to ensure that there is no danger of  the fire spreading.  Recreation meeting  The Halfmoon Bay Recreation Association will  meet at Halfmoon Bay school this coming  Wednesday March 10 at 7:30 pm. Walking and  bike trails will be on the agenda for discussion and  everyone is welcome and input appreciated.

A box is located at the school for donations of  educational material for an orphans' school in  Uganda.  Carol Fisher at 88S-7293 is in charge of this  project and has more information.  .Sargeant Bay Improvements  Members of the Sargeant Bay Society have  recently built a footpath on the public right-of-way  between Kenyon Road and the fish ladder in  Sargeant Bay provincial park. Up until now the  trail was haid to find and was rocky and slippery  when wet.  The new path provides a second connection  from the beach to Redrooffs Road, allowing a  leisurely circle walk around the bay via Kenyon  Road.  The society is grateful for the help from local  firms who donated materials and equipment for the  project, including Construction Aggregates for the  material, Swanson's Ready-Mix who trucked it to  the site, and Mel Stanton's Bobcat Service, who  spread it along the path and charged well below  cost.  The society is considering as its next project,  building a trail along Colvin Creek from Redrooffs  to the north park boundary to connect to a trail to  Triangle Lake which will be built by the Sunshine  Coast Forest District.  Sargeant Bay is now a most attractive park and  it is good to see there is a waterfront beach for all  to enjoy, one which was dedicated to the memories  of both Art Angel and Larry Reardon, men who  were involved in that area for many years.  Memorial Service  St. John's United Church in Sechelt was filled  to capacity last Saturday for the memorial service  for Eva Lyons.  Family and friends paid tribute to the memory  of this fine lady and later in the day the family  gathered at the home on Redrooffs while daughter  Marilynn rowed out in Lyons Cove to dedicate  Eva's ashes in the place she so dearly loved.

These  last few days sure have been  pleasant with these rains. I was  quite relieved when they finally  came. Although now it's a pretty muddy scene trying to get up  our driveway. After the ground  being so frozen, then thawing  so quickly, it's quite the soup  bowl.

And now a local book publisher in Pender Harbour is  doing it: putting together an  encyclopedia. But the difference  with the book being put out by  -Harbour Publishing is it's more  likely to contain entries on the  Easthope boat motor, the Union  Steamship Company and the  early colony at Sointula on  Malcolm Island than tomes on  the fathers of confederation.  In the process, The Encyclopedia of BC will offer a version  of both past and present with a  distinctly British Columbian  flavour. The idea, says publisher  Howard White, was to do a  project like the Canadian Encyclopedia put out by Edmonton  publisher Mel Hurtig, but to  include all Ihose items not found  in conventional reference books  because "they're too British  Columbian.  "Minstrel Island, for  instance, is a place that wouldn't  be listed in an encyclopedia of  Canada," says White. But in the  BC version, it's listed as both  the place where Martin Grainger  set his famous novel Woodsmen  of the West and the locale of the  bar with the greatest volume of  beer sales in the province.  "...Things that are part of our  history that are not necessarily  recognized outside BC," he  comments. "A lot of people of  interest to British Columbia,  like Jim Spilsbury or Hubert  Evans, aren't in the Canadian  Encyclopedia because they  aren't national enough."  While local legends and  stories have often been recorded  in local history books and small  newspapers, "a lot of them  remain very marginal," he says.  "A book like this should be  Howard White  much more influential. By  bringing them together in one  place you reinforce our BC  identity, saying these are Ihe  people and places important to  this part of the country."  Already, stories of the sort  Harbour Publishing has been  putting out for close to two  decades in Raincoast Chronicles  make up part of an unacknowledged culture and history of the  province, but "because it's  never been recognized in any  reference books they don't think  of it as real history," says White.  Sample pages from the encyclopedia - which has now been  in progress for about two years -  include brief outlines of settlements in Kingcome Inlet and  Lund, a profile of mountaineer  Phyllis Munday, the first  woman to climb Mount Robson,  and entries on items from Sky-  train to the BC Sugar company.

When it's  finished, the encyclopedia  should be about 600 pages, says  White, with 450 illustrations  and 500,000 words."lt turns out  that's an incredibly small  space," he says. Figuring out  what to include and what to  leave out is in itself a monumental challenge. "It's great fun. It's  like playing God," he says.  Most of that work falls to the  encyclopedia's chief editor,  Daniel Francis, who also  worked on the Canadian Encyclopedia and has written several  books of history.  In fact, says White, there's a  fine science originally developed centuries ago for choosing  categories and cross-referencing  material.  A panel of academics and  experts will also examine the  encyclopedia to make sure  research is up to standards.  In addition to the more  colourful local stories, the book  will also contain many facts  about BC that simply don't get  covered usually, including information on scientific research  being conducted in the province.  Geographical information on  the lesser-known towns and  backwoods areas of the province  usually left off larger maps will  also be included.  "Its quite exciting," says  White. "But il also carries with  it a lot of responsibility. If you  slant it or give it an inappropriate emphasis you won't succeed."  The area of BC politics in  particular provides ample  ground for zany material from  Armor de Cosmos to recent  premier Bill Vander Zalm. But  "we're not going to editorialize," says White. "You can't do  that in an encyclopedia."  First nations people, both  past and present, will be a large  part of the book, says White. So  will various ethnic communities  which "have tended to be  washed out" of most official  histories,  In some ways, says White,  it's a project Harbour Publishing  has been gradually working up  to with its focus on regional  history. "I'm afraid lhat BC is  just going to disappear," he  says. "We're collectively all  losing our sense of what that is."  In most reference books  published in Eastern Canada,  "all the people on lhe other side  of the Rockies are treated as  being a little bit irrelevant to the  mainstream of Canadian history  so you can't look them up," says  White.  "Our facts are also significant and have a right to be on  the shelf beside Sir John A.  MacDonald."  Katherine Govier  coming for reading  "An evocation of place.,.a  complex exploration of the  social roles people choose to  play." Those are some of the  rave reviews of the latest novel  by the author who will read Friday, March 12 at the Arts Centre.  Katherine Govier is a Toronto-based author of four novels  and two books of      short stories. Her  latest novel, Hearts  Books in Canada says the  novel about "fashion and friendship and  life  in the  fast  track...and the possibility of  dropping out."

Robertson, who has been playing with Ter-  rance Simien and the Mallet Playboys for the last  three years, has performed with the likes of B.B.  King, Lightnin' Hopkins, Albeit Collins and Big  Mama Thorton.  Robertson, who grew up in Houston, Texas,  began playing guitar in his early teens and credits  Hank Williams as a main inspiration.  "I liked the way Hank could move the audience."  Of his own unique style of music, Roberston  says there is but one bottom line, "Does the  music make people jump?"  His sound combines Robert Cray's smoothness of vocals and B.B King's smooth licks with  Johnny "Clyde" Copeland's energy, to come up  with a sound that keeps people hopping on the  dance floor.  Robertson and his Posse will be at the hall Friday March 26, in a performance which will benefit the Teen Parent Daycare.  Tickets are available at the Roberts Creek  Store; the dance starts at 9 pm.  Spreading word about Written Arts festival  The Festival of the Written  Arts is busy telling the world  about the Sunshine Coast.  Each year the festival's  16,000 brochures go out across  Canada and the Pacific Northwest states as ambassadors for  the Sunshine Coast spreading  the word thai this is the perfect  holiday destination.  Each year the festival's  advertising in The Globe and  Mail, Seattle Weekly, Nine  Magazine, Step Magazine, BC  Book World, Today's Times,  and the BC Teacher reinforce  that message. And once tourists  are here our festival street banners encourage them to stay and  visit.  Now we want to tell the Sunshine Coasl lhe good news  about the 1993 Festival g_l the.  Written Arts (August 12 to 15)  and the Festival Pavilion Summer Concert series.  It will be another star-studded festival with a lineup of  speakers lhat includes Ihree  Governor General's Literary  Award winners and four run  ners-up, one officer of the Order  on the arts beat  of Canada, the 1992 winner of  the VanCity Prize, a handful of  National Magazine and BC  Book Prize winners, as well as  nominees for the Books-in-  Canada First Novel Award.  The festival pavilion Summer Concert Series will feature  a concert on Sunday, June 20 by  the 76-member Vancouver  Youlh Orchestra under conductor Arthur Poison. In August the  Vancouver Symphony Orchestra will return to the pavilion,  and we will also sponsor a concert by a 23-member string  ensemble drawn from the CBC  Chamber Orchestra.  On the jazz front, The Solid  Brass Trombone Band, starring  the remarkable Dave Robbins,  will be here for a return engagement j>n Wednesday, Aug. J1,  the evening before the festival  begins.  And more concerts are being  arranged.  This spring the festival society sponsors six workshops for  writers at the Rockwood Centre,  ranging from fiction, travel, history and crime writing to ses  sions on publishing your own  cookbook and composing your  own songs. Another four workshops are scheduled for the  summer.  Funding all these events is a  continuing challenge. This year  the festival will raise ticket  prices to improve the level of  earned income, and on Feb. 16  the festival society kicked off an  epic fundraiser - a raffle of a  beautiful yellow limited edition  Mazda Miata. Tickets are $10  each and the draw will take  place June 15.  The festival must look to the  Sunshine Coast community for  support. Become a Friend of the  Festival and ensure that summer  on the Coast continues to mean  greal literature and great music.  You can be a Festival  Donour by donating any amount  up to $100, a Friend of the Festival by donating $100 or more,  a Festival Benefactor by donating $250 or more, and a Festival  Patron by donating $500 or  more.  Or you can sponsor a specific  event such as one of the concerts in the Summer Series. For  more information call 885-9631.  VINYL SIDING  Vinyl i Aluminum Windows.

His  plane was not so lucky.  Approximately 80 people  came out on a sunny afternoon  in Sechelt to get the facts on the  proposed gravel extraction from  crown land adjacent to Sechelt,  by Sechelt Aggregates Ltd., and  the Sechelt Indian Band.  "My chief concerns were for  sound and dust," said Hospital  Board Chairman Tom Meredith,  who gave most of the facts at  the meeting.

In discussing his concerns  regarding the propane tanks he  described what would happen in  the event of a boiling liquid  expanding vapour explosion.  McGillivray said that experiences in Arizona and Spain  indicate that propane tanks the  size of those in Roberts Creek  could, if the above event  occurred, create an explosion  that would destroy an area of  one-half mile radius.  15 YEARS AGO  Long time Sunshine Coast  resident and Coast News columnist Peter Trower will appear on  national television on the Peter  Gzowski show. Appearing with  Trower will be local musicians  Ken Dalgleish and Michael  Dunn.  20 YEARS AGO  The Roberts Creek Community Association at the February  meeting has decided to try to  prevent the area from becoming  an asphalt jungle.  The first step in Ihis direction  was to pass a motion in favour  of prohibiting further subdivision into lots smaller than  18,000 square feet.  25 YEARS AGO  Who is this man Trudeau?

The  construction committee has now  studied thoroughly, the X-ray,  laundry, and kitchen equipment.

For example a peison who  stipulates 'No Children' as a  condition of rental would be In  violation of the Family Status and  Ihe Human Rights Acts.

Says Sandy McBride, director of the Women's Resources  Society: "The team approach  that Baker and Tanchak projected was considered a real asset  by the hiring committee. We  have two people with experience and talent that will focus  on this workshop series. Baker  has a knowledge of communily  resources and Tanchak has a  refreshing and energetic  approach."  The workshops have been  made possible by a grant lo lhe  Women's Resources Society  from the Ministry of Social Services. The workshops will be  geared to the needs of women  living on a limited income.  McBride says, "Women want to  be able to help each other and  Iheir families in Iheir own communities."  Among the topics to be  addressed are legal issues, community resource awareness,  how io organize community  projects, budgeting skills and  getting into the job market.  The workshop series will  begin in mid-March and continue through October in locations  from Langdale to Egmont.  Workshops will be offered free  of charge.

Last June, the Save Georgia Strait Alliance (SCSA) taught several  hundred students in a number of communities to do quadrat studies,  identifying and cataloguing the marine life found on their local  beach's intertidal zone. Through annual quadrat studies, changes can  be monitored and data can be collected on the effects of human activities on the health of the intertidal zone.  The quadrat studies were a great hit with students, the alliance  says, and teachers were eager for more resources and ideas. Now a  new publication is ready that is sure to be popular and useful.  Aimed at grades 6 through 10, The Straitkeeper's Handbook: A  Teacher's Guide lo Discovering Ihe Ecology of Georgia Strait, provides inspiration, plenty of information and practical activities for  classes.  The 130-page cerlox-bound book includes a fold-out map, introduction, glossary, list of resource people and materials and sections  on beach etiquette, seashore habitat, quadrat studies and pollution  issues. For more info., contact SGSA at #2-195 Commercial Street,  Nanaimo, BC V9R5G5 (phone 753-3459).  FOR THE MONEY!

Congratulations  to Danny Hubenig and  the Daniel's Team; may you  prosper in the years to come.  by Charles Hart  While the provincial Liberal  Party has been thrown into disarray by Sunshine Coast MLA  Gordon Wilson's all-too-public  fall from grace, away from the  headlines the federal Liberals of  the North Island/Powell River  riding are busy regrouping in  preparation for a fall election.  Two candidates  are in the running ������������  for the nomination, Joyce Carlson and Al Hud-  dlestan, and there  are others said to  be waiting in the  wings.  Joyce Carlson,  a former publisher  of   the   Powell  River News who  was   born   and  raised in that com-       __________  munity, issued a  press release last  week declaring her intention to  seek the Liberal nomination.  "It has always been my intention to enter politics and this is  the right time to do it," said  Carlson, 44, who has been publisher of the Gulf Islands Driftwood on Saltspring Island for  the past three years.  Carlson is involved with both  the provincial and national  newspaper associations and is  currently second vice-president  of the Canadian Community  Newspapers Association  'I'm very  serious and I'm  going to go for it.  I've bad a alot  of encouraging  support in tbe  riding.'  - Al HiiMlfsltiu  Hardy for the past five years,  has broadened his political profile on Vancouver Island in the  Association of Vancouver  Island Municipalities, to which  he was elected president in  1992.  He also serves on the executive of the Union of BC Municipalities.  "I'm conceit  ��� traling on getting  the nomination,"  Huddlestan said.  "I'm very serious  and I'm going to  go for it. I've had  a lot of encouraging support in the  riding."  Huddlestan  said he hoped  their would be a  strong slate of  _____ candidates challenging for the  nomination. "It  will help the cause."  Riding association past-president Dan Reynen said he  expects there will be others in  the race.  "We do have a couple of  other people who have  expressed interest that haven't  declared ... There's a lot of  interest and I'm pleased to see  we're getting some good candidates."  Reynen predicted a shift in  voting priorities for the federal  election because of widespread  Al Huddlestan, mayor of Port     distrust of politicians and fallout  COLLECTION  That's right!

He said  he believes voters will be paying much closer attention to  their local candidate this time  round. "People will expect their  representatives to represent  them and we can expect to see  more crossing of party lines."  Before the party can hold a  nomination meeting to select a  candidate to take a run at incumbent NDP MP Ray Skelly, it  needs to elect a new riding association executive.  Reynen, a Campbell River  resident, said the association  lapsed two years ago and the  party is planning to elect a new  executive by the end of March.  He said such elections are  usually held in Powell River, the  central point in a sprawling rid  ing which encompasses the  whole Sunshine Coast, Vancouver Island from Campbell River  north, and a stretch of the mainland as far north as Bella Coola.  Other parties in the riding  have also been laying election  groundwork.  The Reform Party got started  early and selected John Duncan,  a registered forester, as its candidate at a December nomination meeting. Duncan hosted a  recent public meeting in  Madeira Park to spell out his  party's position on the aboriginal fisheries strategy.  Progressive Conservative  Party spokesman Harper Bakie  said he does not anticipate a  nomination meeting in this riding until after the parly's leadership convention in June.  "A new leader may attract  more interested candidates," he  said. Bakie said there are  already three candidates interested, but the party has a policy  not to release their names until  they have declared themselves.  A new riding executive will  need to be elected before nominations take place, and acting  president Bakie said he did not  know when that will be.  NDP incumbent MP Skelly  survived a run at his candidacy  last year when Halfmoon Bay  resident Roger Lagasse took the  veteran MP on.  Skelly will be seeking a third  successive term as North Island-  Powell River MP.  SCRD still coming  to terms with role  of new committee  hy .lane Seyd  Alter an acrimonious beginning lasl month, round two of  the regional district's new  development services committee proceeded this week in a  less confrontational tone, but  directors were still haggling  over just what should be included in the new offshoot of  regional planning.  Despite the relatively low-  key discussions, rural directors  and mayors of the municipalities still had trouble agreeing on  what the committee should be in  charge of and just what a  "regional issue" really means.  Like most political wrangling, it all came down to  money.  On their part, regional directors said Sechelt and Gibsons  should pay a portion of the costs  for planners to work on broad  development issues which affect  the Sunshine Coast.  But both municipalities said  they are still leery of a potential  "downloading" of costs for  issues which they may only be  marginally involved in.  Among those issues which  will fall under the new committee to be tackled by all governments are data bases using  regional information, some  studies with regional implications such as transportation and  regional environment issues,  wilderness parks proposals,  fpa-e��hore and inlel studies and  Hillside Industrial Park.  Among those not included  will be waste management  plans, water management,  regional parks planning and  soils mapping for lhe agricultural land reserve.  One question of concern to  the municipalities was how it  will be decided which studies  are done and how proportional  payment will be worked out.  But a suggestion by Sechelt  mayor Nancy MacLarty to operate by consensus was rejected  by regional directors as unworkable.  Following the meeting,  MacLarty commented, "Obviously there are things we're still  not happy about, but it doesn't  really matter how we feel, we're  outvoted."  MacLarty said municipalities  were still concerned that paying  into the development services  committee represents a "thin  edge of the wedge," but added  "they have the Municipal Act on  their side."  _=Ne/so/i  HOMMS  Guaranteed Guaranteed  Price. _ Service.
